I think I had the same disappointed feeling I had after drinking Wychwood's Bah Humbug! Rudolph's Revenge had a nice hoppy bottle-conditioned flavor with Cascade and Styrian hops (not sure if I've ever seen an English ale with Cascades before). But I wanted something a bit spicy, and I didn't get that. It's 6% abv, but you wouldn't know it. There's even a story on the bottle about Rudolph stopping in Cropton and getting shitfaced, but I can't very well see how it was on this beer.
